Hi Everyone,

I have a ESXi 5.1 on x3650 M2 that is now Randomly restarting

ESXi is running on a USB drive in the server

It boots back up fine but has corrupted 2 VM's in rebooting and not sure why it's doing it

The only thing we have done of late is replaced to failed hard drives in Raid which Synced up fine and Raid is now healthy

ESXi is not running on that raid anyway, the only datastore

Hope someone can point me in the right direction

What Logfiles should I be looking at or upload here to see what its doing

Thanks Adam
